Dramatic true-life story of Albert Pierrepoint (Timothy Spall), Britain`s most notorious hangman. Following in the footsteps of his father and uncle before him, Albert joins the `family business` in 1934. Living a secret life as a master hangman, as well as a humble grocery deliveryman and loyal husband, Pierrepoint`s reputation as the most highly regarded executioner in the land results in him executing some of Britain`s most infamous murderers including Derek Bentley and Ruth Ellis, and also the Nazi war criminals convicted at the Nuremberg Trials. But the media coverage from these shatters Pierrepoint`s closely guarded anonymity turning him into a minor celebrity.
